Ann was so lovely and looked after everything perfectly. Our dog was so happy and contented and he looked pretty sad to see her go! Great communication, and clearly really loves dogs. Thanks so much, Ann.

Anne was marvelous in the way she cared and looked after our cat and dog. Nothing was too much trouble for her, our dog had morning and evening walks. We would not hesitate to recommend Anne as a housesitter and would love to have her back if we go away again.

Dwynwen (Ann) is an absolute treasure! She looked after our very energetic and sometimes naughty, 4 month old German Sheperd puppy, showing him great love and patience. We felt very relaxed while away that he would be in good hands with Ann. She also cared for our two guinea pigs. Our house was super clean and tidy on arrival and Ann was great at keeping us informed while away. She even stayed until we arrived home late at 9.30pm!

Dwynwen (Ann) took such great care with both the animals and my sauce collection of plants. We came home to a beautifully clean home with happy animals.
